CRICUT CRAWL- FANTABULOUS CRICUT



Welcome  to the "Fantabulous Cricut Crawl"...our version of a blog hop!

If you've come from visiting NANA at You Unique Reflections you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start here.

For our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, each Design Team member will be featuring a specific element related to using your Cricut.   There will be prizes along the way AND there will be a grand prize for the participant that incorporates the most featured elements on ONE project!!!  How fun is that? 


The element I've chosen to feature for the crawl is...


Shadow


When selected, this Feature creates a larger shadow image of every letter, shape, or phrase that is selected. When the Shadow Feature is active, the Shadow key will be backlit in green and stay lit until you depress it.

TIP: When sizing a Shadow to fit a letter, shape, or phrase, use the same dial size thatwas selected on the base image or original letter. Example: If you’ve cut a 2-inch “A” and you now want a Shadow of it, keep the Size Dial set at 2 inches just press the Shadow button.

TIP: Using just the Shadow by itself creates a chunky version of the original font.  Sometimes it's good just to use the shadow if you need fatter letters.


Now from Create A Critter, here is a tag project from beginning to end using the shadow feature on the frog.  Create a Critter is probably the easiest cartridge I've ever owned for layering!




Now it's your turn!  Use the Shadow feature on your project.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
The prize for my blog is a $20.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops. Link your project to Fantabulous Cricut using the Shadow feature for a chance to win! While you're here, leave a comment and become a follower for another chance to win!
